Elliott Smith, of Marianna, has been selected as the newest recipient of the Hurst Scholarship at Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas (PCCUA).
The Hurst award is a full-tuition scholarship. Smith's goal is to pursue a career in industrial welding.
The Hurst award is made possible through the generosity of the late Mary Evelyn Hurst, of Helena-West Helena. The scholarship is awarded to students who have completed the GED and wish to continue their college education.
Recipients must enroll in 15 or more credit hours and maintain a 2.75 grade point average in order to keep the scholarship for two consecutive years.
